Adams welcomes all-party motion of censure
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has welcomed the agreement by all parties in the Dáil on a motion of censure of Michael Lowry.
Sinn Féin brought forward such a motion and we welcome the fact that a motion of censure has now been agreed by all parties.
Speaking this evening after the motion was published Mr. Adams said:
“I welcome the agreement of the motion of censure of Michael Lowry. This motion is about assuring the public that the type of behaviour revealed in the Moriarty report is not acceptable and that the Dáil has a firm view on these matters.
“Having been established by the Dáil, the Moriarty Tribunal has now reported back to us. It is now vitally important that we act on all of its recommendations.
“Sinn Féin was and is deeply dissatisfied with the manner in which the Government organized the Dáil debate.
“Sinn Fein objected to the debate as proposed and brought forward a motion of censure to be debated.
“We are now pleased that an all party motion has been agreed.”
